18W offline flyback with large secondary capacitor.
We are currently looking to design a 18W offline flyback as follows:-
Currently I have done the design and have chosen to use UCC28C40D , and another design with UC3843.
-However, my boss believes the component count is too high and says we need a different solution.
-Please can I speak with Texas staff about our requirements?
Vin = 85-265VAC
Vout1 = 36V +/-2V; 13W
Vout2 = 5V, +/-0.25V; 4W
Vout3 = 3.1V, +/- 0.3V; 0.6W
(Vout1,2,3 are fully SELV isolated outputs….not isolated from each other though)
Efficiency = 85%
Standby Power = <500Mw.
Frequency = 50-150KHz.
Skip-cycle during light load.
Capacitance on 36V Rail = 30mF.
(…..this is for energy storage for when there is a mains power cut when the customer is running fluid from the tanks….it closes the fluid flow off with the stepper motor valves)
-this 30mF capacitance should be charged up in ~ 1 second after power_ON……but we may allow this to extend up to say 3 seconds.
Notes on Standby:-
Our standby requirement is interesting, because during standby, our 5V & 3.1V rail is actually loaded with 170mW……..
….-this is due to the RF transceiver, which must keep listening for an ON command from the remote device during standby.)
High energy storage capacitance:
Most PWM controllers go into hiccup mode when charging up our big secondary capacitance. –and so are not useful to us
Anyway, myself and the R&D Engineering Manager, were wondering if you may have any suggestions to suit our requirement?
……..please note that LT1243 is pin for pin compatible with our intended device, (UCC28C40D) from Texas
Here is the simulation file in LTSpice:-
